FSCX (Free Style Cyclo Xross) is held in March sponsored by Circles in Nagoya. I feel like spring has come here.
We’re getting more girl riders challenging the race this year, yaaay!:D These girls are not real racers, thats amazing to see them getting sloppy, riding on ditches, steep slopes, deep mud and carring their bike with pretty muddy faces. It was pouring rain the night before race, some places got very muddy and slippy, we all could expect some funny things would happen in this race.

SAL knows what we want. This is how the cyclo-cross race goes. Nothing like the good clean fun of free style cyclo-cross.
I had a great time. It was one of the greatest event in Nagoya. We’re now planning for next girls project coming up in May. See ya.

Are we going to snowboarding or biking this weekend? That was the decision we wanted to make for last saturday. Some of our bike friends went skiing and snowboarding and some of us went biking. At Gurten in Bern (our Capital City):
My both Intense are not ready to ride, so I chose to take the Santa Cruz – VP-Free and Domi of course he took his V-10!!
My both Intense, left behind in the cellar…
Well, ok… the first half of the trail was very icy in the morning, but it got better in the afternoon.. or should I say it melted to mudd:-)
..guess which bike wasn’t on the trail yet:-)
It was a very cool riding day. It took a while to get all bikes and clothes cleaned….
..but it was worth it!! We made also some filming… maybe you’ll see more stuff later on my blog

I’ve been lazy and just finished sorting out my great memories of bike trip to Australia. I miss the weather back thereee, it is snowing here in Nagoya today, awwwww! so I would like to share some pics of my holidays to keep warm here like the sumer time…
Riding in Melbourne is great. It’s really flat and everything is close together so it is easy to ride around.
I went to see my friends there. I met these lovely messengers at CMWC Tokyo.
The funniest guys in Melbourne! Gotta see Brian & Lane if you are ever around there. They know how to throw a party. It is really great to have cool friends all over the world.
Melbourne was over 37℃, I was just about sit down in the shade of a tree… then 2 guys on bikes came up and said “Are you Brian’s friend?” I was like “Yeees…” Mmmm, I recognized him by his dread locks hair from CMWC tokyo. We didn’t know each other, he is from Dublin and Im from Nagoya but we start getting some drinks and became friends. It was just an accident that we met in Melbourne but it happens when you ride a bicycle!
For New Years Party…
Swimming in the living room!?
OMG these guys were so hilarious! They have a swimming pool in the living room, RAD!!!
Exploring the city...
Lots of good coffee shops in Fitzroy
NUTS! tee & Love Wheels Nagoya Calendar. *Thank you*
Thanks a lot to everyone who made my trip so much fun, to all the great people I met who helped me out, put me up and showed me an awesome time. All the things made me want to move into Australia more. Im definitely coming back soon. See ya!
Don't stop! GO TRAVEL THE WORLD!

Snow is falling from the sky, it is -4°C… we can’t stand our addiction to ride our bikes. So we decided to go on the top of Zurich (Uetliberg). As we reached the top, it was already getting dark, but it didn’t matter – the snow on the trail led the way down. It was a great downhill with snow and ice:

Snow has fallen in Switzerland this week. For the first time this winter. The snow came really late, but here it is. First I wanted to go snowboarding but my Snowboard didn’t arrive yet. So I decided to go biking. My Bikes are all in a kind of winter sleep (service needed!), so I grabbed my Santa Cruz freerider which is not really the bike you choose for up hill. I took my friend Lars with me and he took my heavy bike up the hill. Thanks mate!
The Weather was cloudy and the temperature 4° C. But it wasn’t that cold at all. The trail was full of hard, icy snow in combination with wet mud. Despite of the snow, I do really like riding in mud. It’s fun and challenging! With the right tires “Maxxis Swampthing” you’ll have more grip than you’ll ever expect.
It was a great winter ride, but the downhill was too short! And we had a lot of work to get rid of the mud:-)

Marie’s post inspired me to post a link to a map of the Nashville greenway routes. I’ve done quite a few rides, some of them totaling over 40 miles, utilizing the greenways. I have to say, they’re certainly one of the best things about Nashville. There are multiple long, car free, gorgeous, scenic routes along the Cumberland River.

Yesterday the Cupcranks hosted their third Cupcake Ride. The wonderful Gigi’s Cupcakes provided us with free cupcakes, water, and milk (Thank you!). It was a perfect fall day for riding. The weather was amazing and we got to see the most beautiful sunset over the Nashville skyline. You can find more pictures on my Flickr.

Meanwhile, it’s really cold here in Switzerland. The weather forecast for yesterday said, snow!! Our Mountains are already full of snow…
Fortunately Switzerland is a small place and in a 3 hours drive we are in the South (“Ticino” or “Italy”) ….almost back to autumn. So we decided to bike at Monte Generoso near to the border of Italy. The weather was just awesome 15° C …. blue sky …. sunny …. just great!!!
After biking we ate a Pizza at the Lake of Lugano… and then… unfortunately it was time to drive home. As we drove through the Tunnel of San Bernadino – we knew what’s expecting us – and then it came back – the cold, wet, dark weather.
But it was an awesome day.

I had a great Bike Weekend at Bike Park Livigno. It was my first time there and I do really like this Park. It’s full of flow and jumps. They have this Swatch Bike Park – Big AIR Bag. That was my first time I ever jumped on that Bag. It’s really easy, but I have to confess that I was really scared – I almost didn’t do it… On Sunday, it was a little bit wet and I couldn’t get the curve after a woody North Shore, so I just drove strait a head between two Trees, fell front flip over my Bike and my really hard but stylish saddle cut my leg off (I guess it’s time for a new saddle)…
